Like a ton of bricks! I've been laying in my bed for hours wishing I can go back to sleep, to sleep this darkness away would b great. Y does this happen, I'm on med for anxiety and depression, most of the time I'm ok I get out of bed and do what I have to, but sometimes like today, there's no way I can get up. I took extra anxiety med to try to sleep, thinking about taking pms, I'm so tired of this disfunctional brain I have. Top it all off companys coming at 3 the house is messy and I don't want to deal with anyone or anything. Please leave me alone today world ...

It does happen, I have that Problem to but very rare now I forced myself to get up and I had to get up because I have a little Dog to take out I would then take him for his walk and feel a bit better after that I would fight it, which is very hard and yes I am on Meds for Depressions to and I know I have to take them, but there are still times it does still hit you but if you force yourself to Fight it, I can tell you it will get less and less to that stage it has with me so I really hope that you will try to fight it and see how you go

I understand that Daisy I had to fight for 35 years and 30 years of that with no meds but that is ow it goes, you are at the stage where you have just had enough and I got to that stage but then I would think about the things that I have to live for and I would fight Life is not easy and never will be Sweetie, I really hope you can fight this, maybe see if you can get more help from your Doctor

Hi dasiejanie, Anxiety and depression are terrible and depression is one of the worse diseases to be found anywhere.There is no one single solution for everyone, but it's often helpful to think about what caused it and what sustains it. It could mean making some big changes in your life or just some minor ones. Remember too what's really important here, it is that you get better and get some real joy in your life. You should also find friends who have a positive outlook on life and do something to get those negative thoughts out of your mind. Dare to take charge of your life. Blessings.

Being raised in a large family we never really needed friends because we had each other. I still have no friends.

Hi dasie, Life will bring you friends Daisy just you wait and see. Maybe you cannot see it that way now but you will. Even if they are not permanent friends it does´nt matter you will get to know other People and they will love you and like you as you are. Too much medication is not good it stops you from be able to be yourself. I think having read some of what you have written you are really brave that´s my honest opinion. Take courage Daisy as that is what you have and a great resilience. Hugs. Sue.

The world never leaves you alone when you need it the most... I can't count the times that I wish I could just stop the world long enough to catch my breath and feel better.. It never happens, but I hate when the world crashes in when you least feel like it. Depression in itself is hard to handle.. throw people and extra chores into the mix and it's impossible. What's harder to handle is having to explain to someone what you are feeling and most times they haven't a clue what you are saying. I see this discussion is a week old, I do hope that you are feeling better now :)

If you took more anxiety medication than you should have, then chances are that that's what's contributing to how you're feeling. Plus you said you suffer from anxiety as well as depression; even though you're on medication for it, there are days where you'll still feel the symptoms of not wanting to get off the bed or just wanting to be left alone from everyone and everything. But as horrible as it feels, I don't think taking extra medication will help: it'll only magnify those symptoms and make you even less functional. I hope you do feel better soon and you're about to sleep better and wake up feeling fine without crashing during the day.

I took extra clonzepam to go to sleep because I was so down I wanted to sleep it away.

Most time, its my work..with ontime deliveries and work loads. I try to divert mind on music and i feel better. We need to manage depression, as it is part of life in busy world.

Hi, I am sorry das that you are not feeling so well because of your medication. Maybe you should just take the day and relax a bit. Cancel your visitors and reschedule for another day. If you just will try to have this day to yourself, you may feel a little better. I hope that you will feel better real soon. In the meantime, try lying down and relaxing.

I'm sorry you are going thru this. I don't really go thru that sort of stuff often but I have had those days....just enough to sympathize with you on it. I'm not on meds or anything but I do work some hours that are opposite from most of my friends. Normally everything is fine. I am up late and get up early and I'm perfectly fine with it. Then I have these days where I just really really really need to sleep and it seems as that is when all my kids are calling me needing something and my friends are knocking and calling. Sometimes I just get peopled-out. I just need to be alone with myself and no pressure to do anything for anyone. I just need a breather. I'm a real bear if I don't get this time. Thankfully it doesn't happen often but there was a time not too long ago when taking a shower required strategic thinking...it really did. I'm not sure just what is going on in your life but maybe you just have to set some limits for yourself.
